FRANKFURT May 22 An internal investigation into
possible attempts to manipulate reference interest rates is
continuing at Deutsche Bank and the preliminary
results will be delivered to the German regulator Bafin,
Deutsche's finance chief said on Thursday.
"The internal investigation continues," Stefan Krause, chief
financial officer, told shareholders at the bank's annual
Regulators are looking into more than a dozen banks and
brokerages over allegations they manipulated benchmark interest
rates such as Libor and Euribor, which are used to price
trillions of dollars of financial products from derivatives to
mortgages and credit card loans.
Germany's largest lender is facing an array of
investigations into the conduct of its employees.
